Qualification and certification of NDT personnel

The DGZfP Training Center Hamburg/HELLING

At the end of the 1970s, the HELLING Ausbildungszentrum (HAZ) was transformed into a training center. In-house training and exams for penetrant testing and magnetic particle testing were offered. These were carried out in the premises of the former HELLING KG, close to the port of Hamburg.

In September 1983, the training center was recognised as a DGZfP training center (AZHH). The training program for NDT personnel was expanded: PT, MT, RT and UT according to the DGZfP guideline at that time.
